Most pvp or pve servers have a ridiculous amount on land claim like in the 3733 some people claimed nearly the entire dark forest and the majority of the snow area. If it is possible do you think you can make like a totem or a flag item to b built first before ppl can start building? Like for example lets say i put my flag down. I should only be able to build so far within a generalized area with the flag as the center of the area. This way i believe will control the amount of land claim ppl can do and amount of bases ppl can have. If u build outside the area. The decay timer should b no more or less then 7 hrs and it cannot be refreshed just by visiting it. Now if ur in a clan and all for each 2 players you should have a additional 1 flag item. Whoever is the clan leader should only have access to the building of flags unless ur appointted as a officer. As i have read in other threads i agree about the obelisks being unbuildable places but also believe that idea should b spread out to key locations as well such as the black ice area and the salt lake. Now if some1 destroys ur flag marker in pvp. The decay timer should stay at the exact time it was before it was destroyed but it should still not be refreshed till they place another flag. This would also curb the players who build alot but abandoned a server or their original base location cause they got attacked.
If you like my suggestions or have any of your own. Please feel free to post them on this thread
